At the Bench: Hueman Interest Phantom ThunderStation

Recently, I got a chance to talk with Ben Hopkins, founder and head of post-production at Hueman Interest. Hueman Interest is a mobile post-production services company specializing in data acquisition, workflow architecture, and post supervision for Digital Cinema productions.

Bringing together all this expertise, they have come up with the new Phantom ThunderStation, a highly-portable, laptop-based download station meant to work with Phantom CineMags. It allows for high-speed downloading using the 10GigE found on updated CineStations - an entire 512GB CineMag can be downloaded in only 35 minutes. The ThunderStation also works as an all-purpose data-wrangling solution, since it is natively compatible with RED SSD, Sony and ALEXA SxS, Canon CF, and SD card readers.

For more details on the new Phantom ThunderStation, watch my video with Ben Hopkins above. If you're interested in learning about Phantom cameras and workflow, make sure to check out our Phantom Flex/Miro/4K Intensive Training coming up in NY and LA!

Tools, Charts & Downloads
Our popular comparison chart of Phantom high-speed cameras by Vision Research now includes the VEO4K-PL model. Like the 2.5K VEO 640S, the VEO4K-PL features onboard media storage using adffordable CFast 2.0 media. In addition to its 4K sensor, the VEO4K-PL also has a switchable global shutter mode with a higher base ISO compared to using the camera's rolling shutter mode. And, at less than half the size and weight of the illustrious Flex4K, we think this camera opens up new possibilities for high-speed cinematography.
